Embarking on vacation to an exotic locale feels pretty unlikely in the near-term. As we hunker down at home to wait out COVID-19, memories (or daydreams) of relaxing times, surrounded by exotic, lush foliage, will have to sustain us for a bit longer. For our household, this summer's big adventure will be a perpetual coronacation in our own backyard. 😉 Lucky for us, we happen to be homebodies and enjoy relaxing in our garden. If you'd like to up the vacation vibe in your own backyard retreat, adding big foliage to your garden is a great way to lend a touch of the exotic.
But first, a question: Are you looking to add some all-season structure, or are you looking for pure, unadulterated summer time fun? Your answer is going to dictate whether you're looking for an evergreen leaf or whether you'll consider options whose contribution is more transient. Or better yet, perhaps a bit of both?
Below, you'll find a sampling of plants with big, bold leaves that will add a touch of the tropical to your garden. (Of course, the real fun happens when you expand upon your selection to create a vignette using several plants with an air of the exotic.) Enjoy browsing the options below. When you find one that captures your imagination and that you'd like to add to your garden, click through to get ideas of what to plant with it.
